a few days ago, Andrew / Aka InTheShop, posted a great poem. One of the lines was " I wish to be normal again" . It hit me right between the eyes, I think I commented to that effect in that thread.
I got past the PC and got hit with Coronary Artery Disease. A punch in the stomach. My research in how to stop progression led me to a new Cardioogist who practices integrative medicine and he did advanced blood tests on me, one of which was off the charts and indicates very high risk for a cardiac event in the next one to six months, according to the research I've read.
Needless to say, I didn't take this well. The Dr wants me to retest and said if it comes back with the same result it may or may not be heart related, it could be something else. I have no knowledge of what he is thinking and I don't think I want to know. I am hoping it's just a lab error, and that I'm just predisposed to labs screwing with my head. Not counting on it though, since I'm such an "optimist"
Anyway, the point is, back to Andrews poem, I really just want to be normal again. I wake up each morning and go to my iPad to log on here, and to another PC forum, then to a heart health forum. I listen to Doctor Radio on Sirius XM in the car on my way to work. I think about
my health 24/7.
I doubt I'll ever be normal again, but I gotta try. I know a lot of folks especially many here, have it way worse than I do. That's not lost on me. But I still ain't a happy camper these days, and I need to change it up.
So I'm gonna take a break from posting here for a while. And on the other cancer forum. Might be a week, might be a month, I dunno. Just a break with no plan. (But I'm sure I'll be back a few weeks before my next PSA test
